at it as a pedestrian safety issue, that is where i am coming from. >> michele browne, followed by david pelle pelle. >> the issue to me is not so much an issue of the alternatives that take away a lane in each direction would work best. to me, the issue is taking a way -- away a lane in each direction and making a busy street from six lanes to four lanes, which moves traffic all you still traffic over there. because the plan that they came up with was just come up with about two weeks ago, the final compromise plan, the neighborhood as says the asians are just reacting to it. the association -- of the neighborhood associations are just reacting to it. one association is meeting tomorrow. another is meeting in the next couple of weeks. i think you are getting a more negative reaction to taking away two lanes that i think is being communicated to you and what is being cured now. the cost of this, the transit authority program tabled it said they could study it more. basically, by reducing from six lanes to four lanes, rather than focusing on an alternative with all of the improvemen

watched those charlie brown christmas specials, dolly madison cakes and pies, and then -- >> i actually made a dolly madison cake on the martha stewart show, and martha stewart kept slapping my hand because i kept going to talk instead of making the cake. >> cokie, you have the most varied career. i cannot cop to baking anything, let me just say that right now, but i wondered about this fame that to discover indeed by the end of her life, we actually have photographs of her, that she lived long enough to be photographed, that she became this icon and relic of the republic. that's when i understood that first ladies have the capacity to personify, if they so choose, and this is a pattern in american women in politics, famous or not. there's sort of two things. one is that there are women, real people works actually do things, but then there's this also secondary capacity of being a personfying figure, charismatic figure, and i think many a first lady has come to being first lady and realize that had this thing was larger than life, and that was something that dole figured out, so she bec

know what is going on and are like, al, drop the accent. he wears a brown derby which is an urban style. get rid of the hat, make yourself more bland, white bred, midwesternish. he thinks it would be a betrayal of his roots and community. it's something for which he's admired and something that makes certain any chance he has of winning the election goes away. he's defeated badly. democrats who usually carry the south failed to carry the old confederacy this time because there's the catholic immigrant representative on the ballot. so in the short run, kallen's vision, a vision of a plural society, doesn't prevail. row have immigration restriction, al smith fails, but in the long run, as many of the voters who get excited about al smith start to register and vote, you see an uptick in immigrant voting and the children of immigrants are voting now in the 1930s, they will flock to the new deal and the democrats, and they'll form the core of really the dominant voting bloc in the united states for the 20th century. when you get to world war ii and after, this idea of a plural american

community outreach at this time, we have marcia brown who was a community activist in the '60s and '70s as well heading some of these kind of outreach moments. i think it would be great for the faculty of rutgers newark to go into the high schools in newark and teach a lot of the classes and encourage students who would be the first people in their families to go to college, even the high school graduation rate in newark is very, very low, rather than necessarily just relying on remedial programs for students that can already get in, and i think there's a real class issue that we need to think about. these students need a lot of support. a lot of people are not going to qualify for loans and other things to attend rutgers and pay tuition especially when we consider how our world is becoming more urban and global, and a lot of students at rutgers newark now aren't i national students who are by default paying full tuition and do not have to be subsidized in any way, so i think we need to kind of keep all these things in mind. and while i'm certainly being critical, i think it's just
